// Why is art so personal but at the same time related to a lot of people? The collection tells a lot about the collector. // I have 1.000 Euro that I want to spend on art – what shall I buy? I would invest in Photography; it is still under valuated. // If I want to connect traveling with art – where do I go Düsseldorf. // Three contemporary artists that will still matter in 5 years? Thomas Ruff. Hiroshi Sugimoto. Elger Esser. // One thing you could change about the art market – what would this be? It definitivly needs more transparency. // How did social media change the way you collect art?
